Thanks for popping by!
25/5/23 – New photos for 2023 taken by Remy Hunter! Let’s get this year started.
My first ramble of the year, not that I haven’t wanted to but because I had nothing to say. 2022 was a year really to forget on many levels for me. Work never got off the ground, though the ending was good with a short film for some amazingly talented people. Hopefully I repaid the faith shown in me. Updates on that in due course. But a frustrating one on the whole. Near misses, big projects auditioned for but unable to land them.
It begins to raise questions in your mind as to the reason you do what you do. The self doubt eats away at you. Should I carry on?? Have I had my time? What am I doing wrong.? Am I good enough? This next year will be an exercise is proving those doubts wrong but also maybe highlighting those that are right. Hopefully soon I’ll have some good news, but for now love and light to you all x
Happy New Year to all my Friends and Followers.
May 2023 be a Successful and Happy one for you all!
27/9/22 – back on the audition trail! The last few months, Life has been full on and auditions and work not so much. Hopefully, the worm is turning and I’ll be back in the horse soon. Couple of things I filmed late last year early part of this are due for release soon, keep your eyes posted for updates!
Hi all, Been a slow number of months work wise but I can’t grumble too much as during the pandemic and subsequently after I have been busy and better than some so…. Whilst it has been quiet I’ve put together a new show reel which you’ll find on here and also spotlight and YouTube. Hope alls is well and everyone is happy! Cheers
That’s it… for now I think for my Eastenders Journey, Filming wise anyway. Episodes I have shot over the last few weeks will air end of March and beginning of April. Today was Fab day on set. Thanks to @RickyChamp1 and @TanyaFranksRuns for looking after me these last few weeks. Both brilliant in every way. #actor #EastEnders @MacFarlaneChard
31/12/21 – Before the madness ensues I’d like to wish everyone who has followed, commented, look at, scoffed at, and abused Me this Year a happy and healthy 2022. May it bring you much happiness and all that you deserve. Cheers to you all 🥂#NewYear2022
